First Look: Tour Seeding of New Titleist Prototype Hybrids

From the grounds of the John Deere Classic to the Scottish Open, it was another exciting week on tour and across the globe as the Titleist Tour Reps and Golf Club R&D team unveiled the new prototype Titleist 818 hybrids and continued the performance validation process for the new prototype 718 irons.

The focus of the week: fitting Titleist Brand Ambassadors and gathering their feedback as they put the clubs through their paces.

And as this journey along the path to launch continues, Team Titleist was on hand to bring you inside all of the action from earlier in the week. Check out the photo gallery below for a closer look and make sure you sign up for special 718 and 818 product alerts to get the latest news and updates as share more details in the near future.
